  3. I love all those distance shots of two people – the distance somehow increases the sense of friendship and camaraderie.

  4. Jane, lovely images. The photograph of the Seattle flower market brought back memories from our trip there last summer. We’ve been lucky enough to have seen many markets around the world, but I still think that Seattle’s had some of the most stunning bouquets!

  11. Great photos and the quotes go so well with the pictures.

  12. This is really a beautiful post. Nice combination of quotes and images. I thought of all the important and loving people in my life.

  13. I hear James Taylor singing in the background…..”You’ve got a friend…ain’t it good to know, you’ve got a friend” . OR, Joe Cocker…”What would you do , if I sang out of tune, would stand up and walk out on me? Lend me your ear and I’ll sing you a song…and I’ll try not sing out of key. ooooh, I get by with a little help from my friends.”
    Excellent post friend!

  14. Your photos from Badlands are so fascinating … But i enjoy all of your photos in this post // Maria

  15. The Badlands have such pretty colors! I also really like the captured emotion in “Laughter and Flowers.”

    • Hi Gordon, The yellow mounds in the Badlands are incredible. You would love it. I shot a bunch of images of the flower vendors in Seattle and this was a favorite–they were very friendly and happy. Glad you like it, thank you!

  16. o^^o I have no words this time; sometimes a solence is worth a million words… o^^o

    Here you have a couple more:
    “A true friend sees the first tear… catches the second… and stops the third”; “Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don’t say” and “During the worst moments of your life, you don´t loose friend, you just realize who is a true friend”.

    Thanks a lot for this post o^^o

  17. Blue sneaker buddies……very fine!


  18. That in itself IS a tremendous thing :-). Lovely post my friend!
